North Fambridge  Essex

 

In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described North Fambridge like this:

FAMBRIDGE (North), a parish in Maldon district, Essex; on the river Crouch, at a ferry to South Fambridge, 6½ miles S of Maldon r. station. Post town, Latchingdon, under Maldon. Acres, 1, 248. Real property £1, 577. Pop., 191. Houses, 34. The name Fambridge is thought to be a corruption of Foambridge, and to have been derived from a bridge which anciently stood here, and raised foam in the current. The property is much subdivided. The living is a rectory in the diocese of Rochester. Value, £283.* Patron, the Lord Chancellor. The church is old but good.
